Today, walking my usual route to class, I thought about pathways and how many we overlap or cross wherever we go. Sunday night, I applied for some exciting jobs in Antarctica, a place where most of the continent has never had any human footsteps tread upon it. It's fascinating to think about, how many people have walked where you are walking right now, and how many times you will walk that path, and what was here before there was a path, and so on. My Mother talked about this a couple years ago, and thought it would be fascinating to have some sort of technology that could map all the footsteps that had ever been taken. Do you think the areas where you often walk would be completely covered? Or would there be one little bare spot? Or criss-crossing lines? Or just one solid, beaten path?
